Cristiano Ronaldo Broke My Dreams Many Times: Chiellini

Giorgio Chiellini admits he is relieved to be playing alongside teammate Cristiano Ronaldo at Juventus as the Portuguese international has repeatedly broken his dreams.

The five-time Ballon d’Or winner and current Globe Player of the Year has proved to be a serious thorn in the Bianconeri’s side during his trophy-laden spell at Real Madrid.

Chiellini told BBC Sport: “Cristiano scored many, many, many times against us and he broke my dreams many times – in Cardiff, in Madrid, in Turin.

“Before, the Champions League was a dream. Now it is a target because Cristiano is the best player in the world and we need him to make the last step.

“It’s the personality of Cristiano. He has fantastic skills in the field but out of the field, his attitude – how he works, how he prepares for the match, how he lives every day of his life – can help us. The team has changed.”

Chiellini continued to say; “I think that we are one of the four or five teams who are favourites – Barcelona, Manchester City, Real Madrid, Bayern Munich. But also PSG and Atletico can reach the victory and we are so far away from the key matches still.”

“I was curious to see some particular attitude far from the field. His work in the gym, and his concentration, is something I try to take. He’s helped me because I would like every day to improve myself.

One of Ronaldo’s best moments at Turin was when he scored an overhead kick in the first leg of the Champion’s league semi final which saw fans of Old Ladies applauding his sensational effort.

Although Ronaldo couldn’t celebrate his goal as he would have loved to, he got an accolade at the Globe Soccer Award a week ago.
